Weekend guff

Back in February we tipped up Amir Khan to KO Paulie two thumbs' namesake Paulie Malignaggi at a price of 9/1. The fight at that time had not been officially announced hence the juicy price, but my Raccoon in Brooklyn assured me the fight would go ahead.

He was right. It's tomorrow and although I won't be watching as I will hopefully be doing something more interesting, I'm pleased to have snapped up those generous odds as the best price I can find today for a Khan KO of the noisy little Guido is 7/2.

Good luck with all your punches Mr Khan.

When I say I hope I'll be doing something more interesting, this could have course mean anything as this does not promise to be much of a contest. If I had any kind of balls and motivation I'd be whizzing up to the Nottinghams tomorrow morning to play the £300 side-event of the UKIPT.

I've been following the updates of the main event and it looks like a fun place to be. And since I couldn't be bothered to dust off my lederhosen and head to Vienna either this weekend, I ought to really make the effort.

Alas, I simply find it so difficult to even put socks on let alone shoes as well. I'm going out now, I'm going to Boots to buy another one of their Cajun Chicken wraps, hopefully on this voyage I will summon up some motivation to go out and interact with the wider world this weekend.

Finally, Mexico overcame the enormous challenge of Angola last night winning 1-0. Back Mexico to beat South Africa by the same score line on the opening day of the world cup. They always beat Africans 1-0.
